Monodevelop Build Instructions

Requirements Ubuntu 14.04 +, mono-devel installed

Build MonoDevelop

First make sure you have monodevelop build dependencies installed. This is missing from the official instructions and will keep you from hunting down all required build packages.

sudo apt-get build-dep monodevelop

Next follow the instructions found at but use config options like below to avoid overwritting the default monodevelop packages with ubuntu.

Configure Options and Build

git submodule update --init --recursive

export EnableNuGetPackageRestore=true ;
./configure --prefix=/opt/majorsilence/monodevelop --profile=stable ; make
